우리 모두는 우리가 VR에서 원하는 것을 알고있다: 더 나은 공간 시뮬레이터 게임. Maybe movies we can look around in, 너무. But the industry isn’t shaped merely by our expectations. It’s full of engineers and creators, who are taking VR to places we wouldn’t have imagined. Here are some examples of VR uses that we couldn’t have expected.
VirZoom: Making Exercise Fun
Exercising is not fun; it makes you leave the comfort of the bed to do boring, repetitive tasks in the cold, grey reality until you stink. VirZoom targets the boring part. This barebones, collapsible exercise bike is compatible with the big brand VR goggles and turns exercise into a game. You’re not just pedaling – you’re making a unicorn fly, collecting rings or whatever. Here’s some of that instant gratification, 여기에 시장에서 무엇보다 신체의 일부 VR이다.
VR은 철커덕 재미를 만들기 위해 기다릴 수 없어. 어쩌면 그들은 투석기로 저를 설정합니다!
MindMaze: 치유 속으로 뇌졸중 환자를 속여
MindMaze 뇌졸중을 경험 한 사람들이 사지의 통제를 회복하는 데 도움 VR 리그를하고있다. 의료 과학자들은 이미 연구를 수행 한, 및 VR에 약한 사지의 속도를 증가시키는 것은 뇌졸중 환자가 실제 생활에서 더 사용할 수 있습니다. MindMaze 또한 게임의 처리를 래핑, 그래서 덜 더 재미 비디오 게임과 같은 치료를 지루과 같다. 그 할머니가 치유 자신의 높은 점수를 뛰는 방법.
진정한 3D: 당신의 환자의 내부를 탐험
그러나 건강에 환자를 속이는 것은 VR의 유일한 의료용 아니다. EchoPixel is using their VR 3D imaging technology to help doctors visualize the insides of their patients. The software lets doctors see scans of patients in 3D as well as manipulate them in certain ways to better prepare for surgery.
Waves of Grace: Empathy Through Movies
Waves of Grace is a six-minute movie shot in Liberia that lets people experience the shock and trauma of people living in an ebola epidemic-struck country. This potential attracted such diverse organizations as the UN and Vice, and it helps to grow empathy for people who live in conditions we (previously) couldn’t even imagine. It also ties into immersive journalism, which makes features that let you at least catch a glimpse of what it mean to be homeless in the US.
Samsung and Six Flags: Real Virtual Roller Coaster
Before VR, we had immersive theatre experiences, which used hydraulics to manipulate a specially designed cabin while you watched a CGI rollercoaster movie. It’s a thing of the past now, because you can now catch a VR ride while riding an actual roller coaster. Entertainment park giant Six Flags cooperated with Samsung to bring VR headsets to their roller coasters. Some of the VR experiences replaced roller coaster with spaceship battles in alien skies, while others brought more of a Super-Man experience.
사실, this seems like a way to make roller coasters less scary!
Virtual Reality? In my court? It’s more believable than you think! Crime scenes are already recreated in 3D models, which are then squished to 2D once they’re printed on paper. VR crime scene recreation would let the people at court experience rather than just merely see the crime scene. University of Zurich has already recreated a scene of a shooting that has passed police scrutiny, so judges and jurors can expect to take treks into VR.
Making Astronauts feel home
Space travel is going to be prohibitively expensive for everyday tourists for quite some time. 운 좋게, there are plans for VR tours of space. 그러나, there will still be people going out there, and facing dangers that are somewhat subtler than physical degradation. NASA has tapped DALI of Dartmouth to develop VR software that would let astronauts take a small slice of home wherever they go. Be it a VR recreation of picnic on the beach or their entire home, it would be something that would help those travelling to Mars immeasurably.
만나다? The VR future is both fun and strange. And the best part is the current the barrier of entrance is pretty low. You can program stuff on user-friendly engines like Unity and Unreal Engine 4. Most of the new VR applications are not that visually complex, so you can use stock model sites like CGtrader to get your models fast. With the tools at hand, you only need an idea. How about a VR supplement for crunches that turns me into a catapult?
